Titchfield gears up for Hallowe'en carnival
IT'S a spook-tacular that will see everything from zombies to classic cars.
Residents of a Hampshire village are gearing up for its long-standing annual carnival.
The Titchfield Carnival run by the Titchfield Bonfire Boys takes place this Sunday, with many first-time events planned.
The weekend of events will kick off with a ‘Zombie Walk’ the day before the carnival on Saturday around Titchfield, which starts at 4pm in Bellfield and finishes at the car park at the community centre.
The carnival day itself will feature a classic car show in the village square from 1pm covering the past 100 years of motoring, with vintage, classic and modern vehicles, including a 1915 Model T Ford.
There are over 80 entries, including a car used in TV series Bread and in the French film Amelie.
From 2.45pm the cars will lead the main procession through the village. There will be two processions on the day, one at 3pm.
After this there will be entertainment in the square building up to the evening procession at 6.45pm. Hallowe’en-themed entertainment is on offer after the Bonfire Boys were given 150 pumpkins. This includes a pumpkin trail around the village with decorated pumpkins as well as ‘pumpkin bowling’ in West Street.
The finale of the evening is the mass lighting of 75 pumpkins alongside the lighting of the Carnival Beacon in Barrys Meadow at 8.30pm.
The day will see this year’s carnival queen and carnival princesses crowned in the square and other events like toy car racing from 1pm-3pm and a tea cosy competition. The carnival, which costs around £10,000 to put on, has received a welcome donation of £2,000 from the Southern Co-op.
